That handsome mother Chucker. Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick, yum) had a lot going on in his life at all times–a rich, dead father (or was he?), a mother who died during childbirth (or did she?), his on-again/off-again love affair with Blair, and a name that made for the most creative puns on basic cable–all of which was eclipsed by his over-the-top extravagant wardrobe. The J.Crew catalogue has nothing on this “teen”‘s penchant for layering and mixing prints.
As his character evolved, so too did his masterful wardrobe: With Chuck’s inheritance of Bass Industries came a more sophisticated, GQ approach to dressing–suspenders, pea coats, seriously fancy socks, slim-fit dandy suits for days and a suave, slicked back ‘do. In real life, all of these factors combined would put Charles Bass in a constant sartorial face-off with the Brant Brothers for a spot on our weekly best dressed round-up–which wouldn’t be pretty. Actually though… it would be really, really pretty.
